I am seeing two things,

  1. HREFLANG attribute is not used.
  2. While changing language, product related details remain same which are greater part of content on the page. It is a duplicate content issue.

By fixing these two, things should settle. Also, if possible, add some fresh content to the pages after fixing to do it in better way.

hello @binayjha thank you for your response, i actually had everything alright even i did not use HREFLANG attribute, the products which looks duplicate are actually added just recently long after the SEO problem, but im working on the translation. i have added screenshots from my google search console and google analytics, please check them

Hi @roy, Above links provided to view the screenshots are not working. Meanwhile, please implement the above two points. Things might resolve.

I understand that traffic to your marketplace website has been going down since October 21 and that the product page you gave is indexed without any penalties or manual actions. I think you should do the following to help bring back the usual amount of traffic:

  1. Look over your SEO strategy. Make sure that your website and product pages are optimized for things like keyword density, image optimization, site speed, backlinks, etc. If you need to, you could hire an SEO expert to double-check your plans.

  2. Make yourself more visible on social media. Start promoting your products and website on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn. This will make your brand more visible and give people more chances to find you.
